Noatum Logistics (MIQ) in the News

As you know, Noatum Logistics completed the acquisition of MIQ Logistics on April 3, 2019. Since that time, we have maintained two different brands: Noatum Logistics and MIQ Logistics, a company of Noatum Logistics. Now that our transition is essentially complete, we are pleased to announce the launch of our company as a single global brand: Noatum Logistics.

With the integration of these two organizations, we have fortified our position as a market leader in the management of international supply chains. With this consolidation, we expanded our portfolio of services and diversified our solutions for each of the industrial sectors in order to add maximum value for our customers. Our expanded geographic structure and the synergies that both companies provide allow us to offer flexible, intelligent, complex and adaptive responses around the world.

Over the upcoming weeks, you will see some minor correspondence changes. Our website and invoices will reflect our new name, Noatum Logistics. Additionally, our email addresses will be changing to reflect the Noatum name. Any emails sent to an MIQ address, however, will be forwarded to our new email addresses for an extended period of time. We will continue to keep you up to date as we move through these changes.

What will not change is our steadfast commitment to service excellence and improving our customers’ bottom-line performance. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
